Virtually every Italian laboratory has a legend behind its roots, and Cerasella is no different.
This is The Legend of Cerasella:
was on a mild and sweet night in the month of May surrounded by the enchanted scenery of
the Amalfi Coast that "Cerasella" was brought into the world in a shabby
little house hidden among the terraced gardens full of lemon trees.
Cerasella was a beautiful little girl who had long curly hair and whose
eyes were dark as coal. She had the same liveliness and radiance as the
sun and the same brightness and warmth of the summer sky. As a little
girl, Cerasella spent her days among the sweet smelling
lemon trees helping her grandfather "Peppino" in molding the clay in the ceramics shop.
Cerasella and Peppino used to sell their crockery,
molded from the fantasy and the dreams of the little girl, to local inhabitants. It
was during World War II, that Cerasella, now a beautiful woman, fell in
love with "Niky" an American soldier. It was love at first sight .....
and the results of their passionate love was “Niky” Junior. Niky Junior is
today the perfect fusion between his father’s strength and spirit of
adventure and his mother's passion and fantasy. This strong love and this
long tradition are today perfectly embodied in the “Gorgeous” hand-made
items produced in the Laboratory named after his mother "Cerasella".
